Raising cutaway bus

Anyone lifted a short bus slightly for better off road clearance?

YEah, someone on here lifted their shorty. It was a van shorty.
My Freightliner has a 4.5" lift from the factory.

I have not done it but check out Weldtec Designs "Baja grocery getter kit" . My shuttle bus is fairly high from the factory but these guys take it to the max. I got one bigger tires that are all terrain front and rear. It makes a huge difference on the dirt/muddy Ohio PA. WV. ohv areas.

Weldtec offers some options for the GM platform too, but it'd be worth talking to them before making choice on the vehicle.
